“Soup Is Good Food.” Campbell’s Soup made the slogan famous, but the fact is that soup really is good for you, and this time of year, as we witness the colors of the leaves change to vibrant hues, feel the crisp cool weather on our backs and anticipate the first snowfall, homemade soup is a welcome treat that’s easy to make and warms the autumn chill from our bones.
Potato soup has been a favorite in my house for years, but I’ve found the key to making both a great tasting and hearty potato soup is in knowing two simple secrets:
- Use fresh veggies (never canned)
- Never rush the recipe
Potato soup requires no tricks of the trade, no fancy equipment and can be made well ahead time, so you can prepare it early in the day and enjoy it with guests (or all by yourself!) later in the evening.
